Guix System Distribution

Last Update: 2018-07-06 16:36 UTC


Guix System Distribution (GuixSD) is a Linux-based, stateless operating system that is built around the GNU Guix package manager. The operating system provides advanced package management features such as transactional upgrades and roll-backs, reproducible build environments, unprivileged package management, and per-user profiles. It uses low-level mechanisms from the Nix package manager, but packages are defined as native Guile modules, using extensions to the Scheme language.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 165 (49), 6 months: 135 (66), 3 months: 108 (98), 4 weeks: 44 (237), 1 week: 24 (363)

Average visitor rating: 8.8/10 from 10 review(s).

  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Brilliant ideas, comprehensible minimal installation, and the package manager is working very well on other distributions.

But the distribution still doesn't install and run easily. I'm dying to see what 1.0 will bring. This is a very worthy project that needs more time to cook.

Really buggy error messages filling the screen as I "tried" to install it. It simply stopped, screen went to black, then the hard drive went to sleep - both times. I look forward to using GUIX, however it doesn't seem to be ready for prime time just yet. Great philosophy and packages, though. Great start!
